The Obama administration isn’t even prosecuting criminals are who breaking current laws, yet the President wants Congress to pass new laws. I’ve asked the current and past Attorney General why and their only response is “these cases don’t have jury appeal.” That’s unacceptable.
I want the President to tell me why he can’t enforce current laws before he asks us to create more of them. That’s just common sense.
I believe the President is just trying to check off a campaign promise he’s made. This is all motivated by politics and fundraising. I honestly think this is a lot more about a political calculus than a public safety or response to mass killings calculus.
